Do You Like Rocks and Geology?

Saturday, October 5th 1:00 p.m.

Ken Lyon, P.Geo., is leading a half-day, old-fashioned road trip north of the City of Peterborough. We will explore geology features going back a billion years in The Land Between, one of the most priceless natural heritage areas in Ontario. Stops will include Burleigh Falls, the Great Unconformity between Precambrian and Ordovician rocks at Galesburg and either Lakefield or Warsaw Caves. Lots of Pleistocene glacial features along the way. Details including a road log will be posted on the PFN website before the end of September. This trip complements Ken’s monthly meeting presentation on Oct.9. Not a lot of walking but wear sturdy footwear and dress appropriately for the weather. Also please bring gas money if you want to car share.

Meet at the Riverview Park and Zoo, Water Street North at 1:00 p.m
